One of the best ways to support Restoring Hope is to host your own food drive. The food pantry depends on private food donations for the bulk of its supply. We have tips and suggestions for you to host your own food drive. It’s time to get creative.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Food Pantry was assisting an average of 2,600 people a month. Since COVID-19 we are seeing a 50% increase of families in need of food assistance.
Support from the community and other partners ensures that we never turn anyone in need away hungry. COVID-19 has caused a huge disruption in both supply and demand with our grocery partners and the Houston Food Bank. We are now having to purchase more food staples. Pre-pandemic, these monthly purchases totaled $1,500. Now we are purchasing $4,500 – $6,000 in non-perishable goods each month to meet the needs of our community.
